Fiordland

Fiordland Fiordland ! Fiordland! The name that resounds again and again Once touched you’ll never be the same And to her callings again I came Her many faces now to see Peace and tempest which one are thee The tempest rages uncontrolled As she displays her restless soul Deep in my heart I love this land Untamed, unforgiving rock and sand Shipwrecks adorn your western shores Your Fiords a haven from the storm Here where we see beauty born Among these majestic mountain walls Rugged, romantic, regal all That clash of land and sea Life and death at the hands of the sea One time home of the mighty Moose Axis deer were here let loose In the tussock the Notornis still roam And Trophy Wapiti call this home Land of mysteries, Land of change Where the weather dictates rain upon rain Tomorrow with hope we’ll see a change Perhaps next time when we come again
